Oh you read that right – day spa reviews!
Friday shaped up to be one of my most epic days off in recent months. Not only did i get to check out great architectural salvage and reclamation in Santa Ana and shop thrift stores with The Wardrobe Code in Costa Mesa on Friday, but I got to top everything off by trying out a brand new massage technique at Burke Williams Day Spa in Orange.
I tried out the Dot.com massage enhancement and as someone who spends 40-60 hours in front of the computer doing graphic design work every single week, as someone who’s been doing this kind of work all day every day for years…
I was more than a little ecstatic about this massage that was created specifically for people like me. Check out what Burke Williams has to say about this new treatment:
Dot.com addresses prevalent issues from everyday life including head and shoulder forward posture, thoracic outlet syndrome and carpel tunnel syndrome. The service incorporates a back bolstering technique to work the shoulder girdle area, use of a therapeutic ball for shoulder and arm work, and a therapeutic wand as a way to enhance the stretching techniques used to open up the pectoral muscles and extend the front of the body. This powerful combination of techniques target tension in the neck, back and shoulders. Although the service is designed to be therapeutic, guests will still receive the benefits of rest and relaxation through clay heat packs that help calm and center the body during the enhancement session.
The Dot.com enhancement will be available for reservations beginning June 4 for just $20. It can be added on to a Pure Relaxation Massage and the Deep Tissue Massage. The enhancement will last 20 minutes of the entire massage experience. The service will produce immediate results in posture. It is recommended that Dot.com be booked regularly to produce the most effective and lasting results.
I got the 50 minute Pure Relaxation Massage with the Dot.com enhancement, and if you’re looking for an all-over massage you’ll probably want to do a longer one than 50 minutes. The Dot.Com part of the massage takes up most of the time – but in my case, so appreciated and so worth it.
Little tiny muscles in my arms did that “hurt so good” feeling you get when really bad knots are getting worked out in your back. They literally sang in pain as my massage progressed, but I felt a difference. I absolutely felt a difference. If you work in front of a computer for extended periods of time, this absolutely is a massage treatment you’ll wanna check out!
After my massage, I felt all loosey goosey. I grabbed some dinner at The Block at Ora- I’m sorry it’s The Outlets at Orange now! I don’t get out much. But I grabbed a quick dinner in the food court, and went home exhausted and happy.
See, I told you it was an epic day off!
